It has been fun playing around with recipe videos! I have learned so much! It has really made me appreciate how much work goes into all the creative recipe videos I see as I quickly scroll through social media.
The theme for this months #letsberealmeals project was apples! The ultimate fall fruit. When I think of apples the first flavor ideas that come to mind are cinnamon, oats, brown sugar, pastry and of course vanilla (preferably in ice cream form!)

Let us all agree that the one thing we can unite on is food! I dare you to watch this video and not get emotionally connected...

Just hearing those two words raises your adrenaline.
On Monday, The Complete Plate was invited to pitch the concept of our book in front of an audience of 375 and a panel of 4 judges. The panel included some incredibly talented individuals including Manjit Minhas from The Dragon’s Den.
I like most people dread public speaking. However, you know your passion is legit when your desire to share your vision is stronger than your enormous fear of public speaking.
I only found out I would be on the Boostr stage 6 days before the actual event. For the next 6 days I did as much research as I could to ensure I would not fall flat on my face, freeze, or be a complete bore on stage.
I kept picturing if I did get the courage to make it on stage without running away, I would end up reenacting Agnes’ Mother’s Day speech from Despicable Me 2. Everything would come out monotone and I would say my three minute speech in one breath.
